Option 1: Beginning Wednesday, August 11, students may rent selected textbooks and use their financial aid for on-line purchases. Textbook rental affords students savings of up to 50 percent. Visit www.rent-a-text.com for more information regarding this innovative program. A valid credit card is required to secure the return and/or damages to books that are rented.

Option 2: Beginning Wednesday, August 11 students may order books and supplies online through the TNCC bookstore at www.tncc.edu/bookstore/ and use their financial aid for the purchases. Students may order new or used books and pick up their purchases, or have the items shipped to them. Shipping charges of up to $19.99 will be deducted from their financial aid. Shipping charges over $19.99 will require payment by the student.
